Jewish Currents

Founded in 1946, Jewish Currents is a magazine committed to the rich tradition of thought, activism, and culture of the Jewish left.

Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP) put out a statement on Zionism, including an endorsement of the Palestinian call for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel.

Jewish Currents invited five thinkers from a variety of progressive perspectives to weigh in on the JVP statement. You can find links to those perspectives here: https://jewishcurrents.org/roundtable-the-jewish-voice-for-peace-anti-zionism-statement/.
